Kathryn Dennis has been the star of Southern Charm since it debuted three years ago, much to the chagrin of a few of her co-stars. Today she took a few minutes to chat with Amy Phillips on her Reality Checked radio show about everything from how she was cast on the show (and wound up the center of most storylines) to what really went down between her and Whitney Sudler-Smith and what her current status is with Thomas Ravenel.
Amy started off by asking Kathryn the question that the “haters” ask the most: why she needs Thomas to support her when she comes from a wealthy family. Kathryn shared, “He needs to support me because we have two children together. Not only that, I put my whole life on hold when I met him. I left college, I was three years in at USC. He told me we were going to have children and I wouldn’t have to worry about anything and then he totally off the grid. He hasn’t called me, helped our kids, seen our kids in months. He hasn’t given me money, so that’s why I am asking for his help and support.”
She shares, “Last episode, you met one of my mistakes, and this episode you get to meet Mr. Right! I had a very brief fling with Rey, the guy John ejected from his party, but I knew almost immediately that there was something off about him. He’s a hot mess, and I’m too old to take on any improvement projects. I’m looking for a man who is intelligent, confident and sexy and who has a great sense of humor, and I think I’ve found that in Tom. I knew when Dorinda introduced us that he was someone I wanted to get to know better, but the timing wasn’t right. We texted back and forth yet we couldn’t seem to coordinate our schedules. Luckily, before Thanksgiving, I ran into him, and immediately the sparks began to fly. I didn’t feel the need to loop Ramona in at this point because our relationship is new and I wanted to keep him out of the fray as long as possible. Wouldn’t you?”
Vanderpump Rules co-stars Lala Kent and James Kennedy party at Rehab in Vegas. James and Lala spent their Memorial Weekend in Las Vegas with co-stars Faith Stowers, Jesse Montana and others. James and Lala posed together – along with James’ girlfriend Raquel Leviss – during their appearance at the Vegas hotspot.
The new season of Vanderpump Rules is currently back in production and filming again, so we’ll have to wait and see who made the final cuts for the upcoming season. Lisa Vanderpump seemed to have a soft spot for James and Lala and it’s pretty amusing to see Jax Taylor get so riled up over James (and Lala..), so I have a strong feeling they’ll both be back. And if Lisa is managing James, that’s pretty much a given that he’ll be around this season.
Khloe Kardashian shared her birthday wishes to Scott, who turned 33 this weekend, on social media, “We’ve been through it all and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Forever my brother and forever my bestie! Love you @letthelordbewithyou.”
Kris Jenner also gushed birthday praise on him, “Happy Birthday Scott! Thank you for being a loving and devoted father to my beautiful grandkids. I am so blessed to be able to call you my son. I love you and hope you have the most amazing day! @letthelordbewithyou #love #family #proudmama #happybirthdayscott.”
The trailers left us with more questions than answers and we can’t wait for both train wrecks to blow back into our living rooms. Until those days arrive, let’s dish on the upcoming seasons. What you can’t wait for, what you wish you could change about the upcoming season, and more.

Oh Ramona Singer, you are something else. The Real Housewives of New York star appeared on Amy Phillips’ radio show Reality Checked this week and she was your typical Ramona (just speaking a little slower now, which she mentioned a few times during the interview). Ramona gave the scoop on Luann de Lesseps‘ new man Tom D’Agastino, claiming that Sonja Morgan dated him for ten years – right up until Luann got with him, and so, so much more – like nicknaming herself The Caregiver.
Ramona starts off sharing with Amy her thoughts on the current season, “we all know each other so intensely that it all shows up on camera. It’s like fireworks, not superficial fireworks – like deep burns.”
Is she glad that Kristen Taekman and Heather Thomson are out of the picture this season and that Bethenny’s back? “Well, when Heather and Kristen left they not only brought Bethenny, but Dorinda on because I knew Dorinda. She’s very magical.”
